Every day, in this blog, I call the shots. That is, I decide
what shots to take with my iPhone,
what order to share them in,
what words to write,
what audio/video piece (usually involving music) fits the topic, and
how to express my gratitude.
People with my Myers Briggs type (ENFP) like calling the shots and being independent. However, we don’t like calling the shots for other people or other people calling the shots for us. Therefore, I don’t like when people tell me what to do and I don’t like telling other people what to do. Rather, I prefer suggestion, invitation, and possibility — leaving room for me and others to decide what’s best.
Here and now, I suggest that you call the shots you like best in my photos from yesterday.
Sometimes I take shots of and take shots at things I just don’t understand.
Every day, I look for pick-me-ups that I can pick up and share in this blog. Here’s one I picked up yesterday:
I’ve picked up from picky people that everyday pick-me-ups are particularly helpful on Mondays. Therefore, I’m picking these pick-me-ups for you, today.
When you become part of the universe and the universe becomes part of you, is that a pick-me-up? If not, what are your everyday pick-me-ups?
My sister, who is always one of my pick-me-ups, offered to pick me up later today and drive me and Michael to a Passover Seder at my cousin Lani’s house.
I wonder what pick-me-ups I’ll have to share with you tomorrow.
For now, I need to pick me up from this blogging chair and go to the Honda Dealership to see if I can pick me up a new tire. Then, I hope to pick the right things to say to provide pick-me-ups for people at work.
Now that I have a new medical device (implanted a few weeks ago), I need to identify myself to others that way, for my own safety. Here’s the temporary identification (ID) card I now carry with me, at all times:
That temporary identification card identifies me as having an Implantable Cardiac Device (ICD). The manual they gave me at my identified hospital identifies me as having a CRT-D (Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Defibrillator):
For the past 52 years, since the age of 10, I’ve identified myself as having a pacemaker. Part of my identification as a writer at WordPress is reminding people that adjusting to change — including a new identification — takes time. I am reminding myself, now, that it may be a while before I easily use the identifications ICD or CRT-D, about myself.
Part of my identification as a blogger at WordPress is taking photos that focus on different types of identification, like yesterday:
That last photo identifies the reality that identification can sometimes be … confusing. I shall now identify my main question about that: How can one product be unreal AND 100% real at the same time?
If you can identify an answer to that (or anything else), I hope you identify yourself in a comment.
You may have identified — from my previous posts — that my identity also includes sharing music which identifies well enough with the topic. I’ll identify, right now, that I’m having trouble ID-ing an appropriate musical identification today.
What identification song might you identify, for this post?
A little more identification before I identify the end of this post … I just snapped these identifying pictures of Harley:
Michael (whom I identify as my boyfriend) said, “Harley likes to look out the window and watch the world go by.”
Personally, I think Harley is trying to ID some birds.
I shall now identify and thank — for helping me create this Identification post — pacemakers, ICDs, CRT-Ds, Dr. Estes, Belmont Massachusetts, Captain Stephen Frost, pleasant streets everywhere, those who put smiles on others’ faces, unidentified establishments, dogs of any kind, people who see-saw, tennis players, Star Market, flowers, the real and the unreal, West Side Story, WCRB, Leonard Bernstein, Harley, birds, Michael, and you — of course! — for identifying with me today, in any way.
